  8. Raymond Geuss (2012). Economies: Good, Bad, Indifferent. Inquiry 55 (4):331-360.
    Abstract There has been a strong tendency in economic thought to try to take human wants, desires, and preferences as the basis for deciding how to act. This essay argues that ?needs? constitute a distinct category which cannot be reduced to preference. The reductive strategy is partly connected with a philosophical mistake about the relation between the subjective and the objective. The distinction between needs and wants must be central to any continuing form of human action, but it may also (...)

  9. Raymond Geuss (2010). Gutes Wirtschaften. Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 58 (6):843-854.
    This essay argues that the economic failure of neo-liberalism should be seen as demonstrating in a particularly striking way that the way of forming preferences is an inherently political process, which needs to be controlled by agencies that stand outside the economic process . A number of concepts that have played an important role in recent economic and political theory, such as ‘freedom’, ‘welfare’ and ‘neutrality’, need to be very seriously re-examined. Furthermore it is argued that giving up the idea (...)

  11. Raymond Geuss (2010). Marxism And Ethos Of 20th Century. Studia Philosophica Wratislaviensia 5 (4):7-25.
    The paper on Marxism and ethos of the 20th century enters into debate on the moral and political aspects of modern philosophy. Author argues that the most important questions of the 20th century were those concentrated on the Nietzschean philosophy and Marxism. Consequential for his discourse about these phenomena is the discourse analysis of the legacy of Christianity and liberalism. Author fi nds some inspirations in Alasdair MacIntyre’s works, but wants to distance himself from his solutions. Deliberations about failure of (...)

  13. Raymond Geuss (2010). On Korean Dual Civil Society: Thinking Through Tocqueville and Confucius. Contemporary Political Theory 9 (4):434-457.
    Korean civil society is often criticized because of its dual nature, that is, the paucity of social capital in everyday life and the plethora of collective political actions in the national civil society. Although liberals view such duality as the critical impediment to Korea’s authentic democratization, which would represent a fundamental, liberal-pluralist transformation of Korean society, this article rather acknowledges its cultural uniqueness and utilizes it as the basis on which to construct a Korean non-liberal democracy that is culturally pertinent (...)

    There need be no incompatibility between utopian thinking and a “realist” political philosophy, if “realism” in political theory means, as it properly should, only the rejection of specific forms of unreflective illusion. Three forms of such illusion – wishful thinking, ideology, and the purportedly self-evident unities that are the targets of Nietzschean genealogy – are briefly discussed. Utopian thinking itself, it is suggested, will benefit from avoidances of these illusions.
